What lens you buy? Max 250 EUR

Hi all!
I sold Sigma 17-70 and Pentax 55-300 lens, beacuse I want to change it. I was satisfied, but sometimes it's necessary to shift to a new discovering. My plan was to buy a walking zoom beacuse i need this 'angle of view'. Yesterday I bought Tamron 18-200 ---> Isn't bad lens, but good it's not that....
.
Yet, I have 250EUR. I want da 35 f2.4. That's money you're choose / shopping/? (So much money what do you consider?) And why? THX!
Ps. I have: Pentax K-30, FA28-70 f 4, M28 f2.8, M50 f1.7, Porst 135 f2.8,

Its hard to have a lens better than the Tamron 17-50/2.8 on a budget.

35 is more useful. 50 is too long inside, almost useless in small rooms. I prefer 50 outside, but 35 is not bad outside.

If its a prime, then start with the DA35/2.4.
Its very versatile (good FOV, fast, good MFD, cheap, optically good)

I agree, but it will cost a little more than 250, at least new.

Here's a more off-the-wall option: If you want a walkabout lens (and because you mentioned the Zenitar 16),

how about a Samyang 14mm/2.8 which you set to shoot hyperfocally so you don't need to worry about focus.

It's also a decent video lens if you're into that sort of thing...

thx all, i decided. 35 2.4 the winner,
If I agree to the 'lens quality' in the longer term I will purchase from a wide angle lens
bye
